Awards Categories

 IMPACT 

Sustainability Awards 2022 category - Impact. For Impact nominees, we are looking for sustainability solutions by various types of organizations. May it be a new internal process, product revision, or dropping a feature, it all comes down to the impact. The Impact category has five sub-categories for solutions in areas such as:   

SUBCATEGORIES:

➔ Renewable energy

➔ Sustainable resources

➔ Supply chain

 INNOVATION 

Sustainability Awards 2022 category – Innovation. It's time we realize the potential innovation and technology have when it comes to sustainability. Some types of sustainable innovation like GreenTech startups are solving some of the most burning global challenges, while enterprises themselves are developing industry-disrupting solutions. In this category, we welcome cutting-edge innovations from both sustainability startups and enterprises.

SUBCATEGORIES:
